. at the conclusion of this soundbite, you will hear for the first time the president of the united states warning of a double-dip recession in the united states. listen. >> there may be some tax provisions that can encourage businesses to hire sooner rather than sitting on the sidelines so we're taking a look at those. i think it is important, though, to recognize that if we keep on adding to the debt even in the midst of this recovery, that at some point people could lose confidence in the u.s. economy in a way that could actually lead to a double-dip recession. brian: i think it also shows his impatience with the fact that the hiring is not coming back as quick. the unemployment number is higher than anyone projected. and on top of that he's saying, look, i see the polls, i see what happened two weeks ago. america is concerned about our national credit card. member deficits don't matter. clearly it does matter. gretchen: in both virginia and new jersey both of those states went to republican governors. the number one concern from voters at the exit polls was the economy by a huge margin so a lo

it now. let me show you a new poll that just came out about the president of the united states. i find this confounding. it's a public policy poll. it's done by a democratic pollster. here's the number, 52% of republicans nationwide think a.c.o.r.n., the welfare group, stole the election for president obama, versus 27% who think he won it legitimately. your party is so tough on obama that a majority of them told a pollster that a.c.o.r.n. is competent enough as an organization to steal a presidential election and give it to the democrat. what do you view -- is this about a psyche out there that people are mad at the guy and willing to say, yeah, they stole it? even a.c.o.r.n. did it? what's going out there in the minds of people? >> i wouldn't invest a lot of money based on what that poll says. i did see a poll today or had one discussed with me that said the president that 73% of people of the united states find the president likable or think he's a nice person. >> 74%, yeah. >> but 40% agree with him. and i find both of those numbers very realistic. people want our president to succe

tonight with potential danger for democrats pushing for health care reform in the united states senate. senate democrats scored a major victory saturday night in their vote to allow debate to go forward on health reform. democrats needed every member of their caucus to stay in line, and they did. that, it turns out, was the easy part. the hard part, getting every one of those senators to stay on board to allow the final vote on health care reform. as things stand tonight, that will not happen. tonight, four members of the democratic caucus are pledging to block that final vote if the public option that's in the bill stays in the bill. perhaps as a result tonight, there is growing talk about compromise. this dead lock in the democratic caucus has reportedly led majority party harry reid to begin searching fortwo possible compromise solutions. one is the triggered option offered by senator olympia snowe of maine and the other by democratic senator tom carper of delaware. at this point, the pressure is on harry reid to deliver on the reform that he's been promising. after saturday night's
